Button to Display Field Contents RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a table/form that collects Project summary information.  For each record there is Long Text field named "Scope" that maintains a summary (paragraph) detailing various parts of the project.  Typically I don't want this displayed on the form; however, I would like to place a button on the form that opens a dialog window that displays the Scope contents.

    How is this best handled?

    Thanks PU_RJF
